What are some really good Vocaloid producers

Technically it is VOCALOID a software (and registered trademark) of Yamaha Corporation consisting of a "editor"and so-called"Voice banks"(" Voice Libraries "), which fans call" the Vocaloids ". The first version was developed at the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, ​​Spain.


When the user of the editor enters a text, the desired voice bank sings it and there can be various factors of the voice, such as B. Edit intonation, tempo, vibrato, and breath sounds.
Any interested private person can use the Vocaloid Editor together with the desired Voice Banks acquire and use it to create vocals for your songs and, in compliance with some rules, publish and even sell. There are many Voice Banks to choose from, each with a different pitch, tempo and quality. They can be used for every style of music - whether for pop, rock, classic, rap, jazz, techno or ballads.
The first three vocaloids - LEON, LOLA & MIRIAM - came from the English company Zero-G Ltd. Soon followed MEIKO and KAITO from Japan, a lady named Sweet ANN and finally the phenomenon of the future ...

Hatsune Miku desu. Yoroshiku!

(I'm Miku Hatsune. We wish you a good cooperation!)

Even if this software is already 2004 came on the market, it did not attract much attention as the Japanese company until August 31, 2007 Crypton Future Media Inc. a new voice bank called Hatsune Miku for the VOCALOID2 Editor. (Note: In Japanese, the surname comes before the first name; so it would be our name Miku Hatsune.)

This voice bank shaped Vocaloid thanks to one partly prefabricated biography and an external appearancethat the Japanese anime / manga fans should be sympathetic. Their release was a resounding success, inspiring artists to compose dozen of songs, draw pictures and shoot music videos. Miku quickly became in Japan became a cult and it still is today. Of course, other characters followed their release - and this is how the main feature of the Vocaloid scene came about: Characters.

Meanwhile exist over 70 official vocaloids, and most of them are from Japan, China, and the United States.


Vocaloid, the world and the internet

thanks to the Internets Artists were able to share their songs, pictures and videos with people from all over the world. So it came about that Hatsune Miku and the whole Vocaloid scene too outside of Japan gained notoriety. Thanks to the most modern projections, vocaloids can even perform live at their own concerts. In Japan, Vocaloid is already an integral part of the music scene of both Indie producers as well as big labels benefit. It is common there for various musicians, draftsmen and animators to team up online and offline to create masterful videos to share on platforms such as YouTube and niconico Douga.

Even in the west take care of the Tours of Hatsune Miku,IA,Yuzuki Yukari and Co. for headlines and amazed faces. Even pop stars like Lady Gaga and Pharrell Williams to rappers like Big boi and Post Malone occasionally show interest in the unusual Miku.

But not only Miku Hatsune is in the spotlight. In China have become the chinese vocaloid lady Luo Tianyi and their ever-growing crew Vsinger made a name.

Meanwhile the Vocaloid Engine supports five languages ​​- English, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Spanish - which enables millions of musicians to choose different digital singers in their preferred languages, genders and voices.

With a little effort you can get them to sing halfway in German.

In the meantime there are even other speech synthesizers, such as B. UTAUsome of which free are available.


"But why am I only now finding out about it ???"

Even if many developers and famous artists from the USA, England, Spain and other Western countries have made great contributions to the development of Vocaloid, Vocaloid is still one in Western music Sneeze - and in Germany above all.

This has many reasons. For one, the concept of Vocaloid is right extensive, novel and therefore, for most people, incomprehensible. Try explaining to someone in a few sentences what is supposed to be so great about Vocaloid. If your counterpart is not a technology and music expert, they will think about you from the words "Hatsune Miku" Anime talk.

Thus the circle of interested parties is shrinking Japan fans. For the most part, these are those who are interested in this in Germany.

Yet even among you has by no means everyone Interest in it. Unfortunately, most western residents prefer female singers lower voices - that's why the singing of Miku Hatsune, Rin Kagamine and many other soprano singers feels for them very uncomfortable at. In addition, many well-known Vocaloid songs - pop Songs are. Metal fans don't care. And that's how it comes about with a lot of people prejudice'Vocaloid is some strange robot-like singing group of virtual Japanese pop stars (nicely phrased!).

However, this is not the case at all! Anyone who has dealt with this for a short period of time can find out that Vocaloid is a gigantic, all-encompassing music scene of the 21st century acts. You can teach this to a non-ignorant person if you can incorporating his musical tastes into Vocaloid.

Miku Hatsune also has a large selection of beautiful songs by artists who have a natural - and even deep! - Tune your voice want. A quick click on the keyword "metal" on VocaDB also reveals that they already have more Metal sang than any band that has ever existed - and many songs are in no way inferior to hits from famous bands.

And it doesn't have to be all about Miku and Japan. The initially incomprehensible sounding "Engloids" like LOLA, SONiKA and BIG AL have to versatile CYBER DIVAs, Amys and DAINAs developed. Also some songs of the Spanish vocaloids Bruno, Clara & MAIKA sound like they're coming from the mouths of professional singers.

In short, Vocaloid is a scene in which the singers stand out more than the producers - which is also the case with "mainstream music" - yes where outsiders often forgetthat behind the dancing characters, the many merchandise, the songs and pretty pictures on the Internet, there is one Subculture made up of millions of talented people from all over the world plugged.

It would be nice if it finally did German Vocaloids would exist ... ^^ '
